Can you imagine Datsyuk or Zetterberg ever doing anything like this? Bear in mind, too, that this is the highest-paid player in the NHL. Yikes!

Still, he put up a 41 goal/95 point performance this season. Hes not paid to play defense, hes there to put the biscuit in the basket.

You look at the video of the wings losing in OT...every skater the Wings had on the ice were standing around the crease when the puck went in

Some of them were out of position maybe, but they were at least trying to make a play.

 

That is nothing like what Ovechkin is doing here.  Literally coasting towards the guy about to score a goal.  He had the best seat in the house.

 

The YT clip shows the best angle.  I thought he came off the bench but he was on the ice the whole time, coasting from center ice.
 

Still, he put up a 41 goal/95 point performance this season. Hes not paid to play defense, hes there to put the biscuit in the basket. 

 

When you're paid $9.5 million a year you're expected to be a star player.  And a star player doesn't coast towards the net like that.

 

That was the game winner.  In the playoffs. 

 

Do you guys seriously see nothing wrong with his play there?

 

I wonder how his teammates feel about his effort ?  Yeah, Semin was clearly the problem in Washington.

That's just a blatant lack of effort right there.  Players standing around the crease at least look like they're doing something.  Ovie is slow coming off the bench and takes maybe 2 strides towards the play before completely giving up.

 

That kind of attitude is what allows a team to come back from down 0 - 2 in a series.

... and this makes it OK for him to lazily coast through the defensive zone while the rest of the team plays defense, and in doing so blow an easy opportunity to cancel what ended up being the game-winning goal for the Rangers.

 

Ovechkin, as with every other player on the ice on any NHL team, is there to play hockey. This was not a hockey play, and no coach on the planet would use your reason to excuse such behavior.

He wasn't actually coming off the bench.  (I thought he was too initially).  If you watch the Youtube clip you can see he's been on the ice.  He's just so far behind the play and coasting it looked like he must've been coming off the bench.

Which is exactly the reason the comparison between him and Sid stopped long ago, Sid works hard all over the ice and love him or hate him there is absolutely no question who the better player is.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

 But hockey you have to play both sides at certain points.  Obviously you can be terrible and they still could have scored, but people are complaining about the lack of effort.  


There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

That's a freaking embarrassment.  He could have at least pretended to care.  He should get benched for that alone but he won't.

If we had ovi we would beat the ducks. Clearly you didn't watch the entire game.


And for the clowns who don't he is still ten times the player and ten times the effort as mule. Not to mention the fact look at where he was. He couldn't reach the guy anyways.

Tbh he was simply fed up with the crappy team around him for choking a 2-0 series lead. Nothing wrong with a star captain doing that imo
